Packet networking and optical platforms help boost network speed and performance

ANAHEIM, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 29, 2017-- Aecero, a data center provider in Southern California, has selected Ciena’s (NYSE: CIEN) packet networking and converged packet optical platforms to support the launch of the Aecero Cloud Exchange service, helping to tackle the “last mile” challenge of cloud computing — reaching the cloud. Businesses using Aecero as their data center now have direct high-speed connectivity to major cloud computing providers, including Microsoft and Google, with dedicated connections at speeds of up to 80 Gbps per interconnect.

“Aecero has established itself as a leading provider of power and cooling infrastructure,” says Garrett Mckey, Vice President of Sales, Global Cloud Networking, Ciena. “We are pleased to support Aecero as they enter an exciting new phase of network growth and reach their goal of becoming the top data center provider in Southern California with the Aecero Cloud Exchange.”

Cloud computing allows businesses to quickly and safely scale and to test new technologies with minimal investment. However, public internet access to cloud computing providers can’t meet the speed, latency, and security requirements of enterprise applications.

“Thanks to Ciena’s platforms, our clients can leverage cloud computing’s capabilities with the peace of mind to focus on their business, while we take care of the infrastructure,” says Aecero CEO Ben Byassee.

Resiliency to support mission-critical applications and the flexibility to adapt to rapidly evolving cloud platforms was made possible with Ciena’s multi-terabit 8700 Packetwave® Platform and MEF-CE2.0 certified 5160 Service Aggregation Switch. This solution supports a diverse mix of services over high-capacity 100GbE Ethernet-over-coherent DWDM wavelengths. Aecero’s clients will also benefit from improved network scale and reach with access to all the service providers available in downtown Los Angeles via Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform.

LightRiver Technologies, Inc., a Ciena Diamond-level BizConnect partner, assisted with Aecero’s platform evaluation.
